Joel Osteen daily devotional for today is here. Digest the word of the lord and pray believing.
THE TOPIC OF JOEL OSTEEN DEVOTIONAL FOR 8TH AUGUST 2020 IS “WHAT ARE YOU SAYING? .”
SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 4:29, NIV
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
One reason people get stuck in life is because they haven’t learned to control their mouth. They say hurtful things, put people down, and argue. They don’t realize their mouth is keeping them from rising higher. God won’t promote you if you don’t have the character to back it up. Pay attention to what you’re saying. Sometimes we’ve spoken a certain way for so long we don’t realize that we’re harsh, sarcastic, and condescending. Others may not tell us this, but they don’t like it.
Words can tear apart, leave scars, and make others feel insecure, inferior, and not valued. Before you say something, ask yourself, “Is this going to be beneficial to others? Is it going to make them feel better about who they are or put them down? These are tests that you have to pass. The only thing holding some people back from a healthy marriage, growing friendships, and their best life is their tongue.

Father, thank You that You have given me the gift of speaking words that are wholesome and beneficial. Help me pay attention to what I’m actually saying to others. I commit myself to taming my tongue and using my words to build others up. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
